2018 Conference for Agricultural Worker Health

(Formerly National Farmworker Health Conference)

Hilton Palacio del Rio
San Antonio, TX
May 1-3, 2018

Migrant Health Cen­ters are the early pio­neers of the Health Cen­ter Move­ment. The Migrant Health Pro­gram that was writ­ten into the Pub­lic Health Ser­vice Act of 1962 set forth new think­ing in this coun­try that health care is a basic human right. It was the pre­cur­sor of major social change in a decade of the 60’s when the nation awak­ened to the poverty and hard­ship of a pop­u­la­tion for out­side the main­stream. Migrant Health Cen­ters became the model for com­mu­nity health cen­ters nation­wide with their core com­po­nents of out­reach, patient edu­ca­tion, bilin­gual ser­vices, cul­tur­ally-sen­si­tive care, and com­mu­nity action and empow­er­ment.
